Speak in Images - See in Sounds

Cleveland Photo Fest / Bostwick Design Art Initiative

June 10th  through June 30th 2021

Opening Event: Thursday June 10th 6-9 pm


The Cleveland Photo Fest is now accepting submissions for a collaborative show bringing together Photographers, Musicians, and Poets to create one piece. A photographer, musician(or music group), and poet will be grouped together to create a multimedia piece of visual, auditory, and lingual power. Worlds Collide. Speak in Images - See in Sounds.

The end group will be 30 artists- 10 from each medium. We ask artists submitting: “What inspires you?” “What makes you feel alive?” Show us your perspective and soul. Once selected, the artists will be notified and randomly paired together. The process of creation will vary from group to group, depending on how each artist works. The piece may be a collaborative venture- all artists working together to create one vision… or a “chain of inspiration”- the photographer creates a photograph which then inspires the music which then inspires the poem. The show will be an multimedia event- the image with the recorded music will be projected as the poet reads aloud their poem, one group after another. In addition to the projection, each photograph will be printed and framed in a 11x17” frame- displayed in the gallery with a handwritten or typed copy of its poem next to it.
